Tomorrow is my day of orientation for the nurse extern program. I am so excited to get back into the swing of things. Tuesday is my very first official day in Labor and Delivery and I could not be more excited. I am definitely looking forward to having a patient that is not elderly (no offense, I am just looking for a change and I LOVE babies!) I feel like this is a mile stone in my career as I didn't get into anything maternal in my previous experience in LPN school. That was my main reason for going into the healthcare field in the first place. When I graduated high school, I was a computer major....how freaking boring is that! I ended up quiting school and having a baby and decided to return to school as a practical nursing student. I quit that after a year (i was almost finished lacking 3 mo.) and had another child. That along with other circumstances which I will not divulge into on here kept me away from my dream. To make a LONG story short, I had one more child, moved, changed the way I lived and started my journey to becoming an RN. It has been a long time coming.
